Considering the political and social climate of the day, I thought now would be a good time to post some of my favorite quotes from our 26th President, Theodore Roosevelt. President Roosevelt was a member of the Republican Party during his time in office, yet it seems to me that he would not fall under the same mantle today. (nor any of the other options) The messages in many of these quotes transcend politics. http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/t/theodore_roosevelt.html And my favorite of all time, an excerpt from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on April 23rd, 1910 http://www.theodore-roosevelt.com/trsorbonnespeech.html There are many other great quotes. Post if you have any favorites.
